NIKE Boys Basketball Camp: CUMMING

Posted by Brandon Chappell | Friday, May 3, 2013 | Category: |


If the game of basketball had a mascot, it would be a pine tree. Why you ask? The history of basketball proves that pine wood played a major role in the development of the great sport. In the beginning, pine wood was commonly used for basketball courts and bleachers. The phrase "ride the pine" for players that did not get a chance to play, originated from the pine wood made benches. Now different wood and materials are used for courts and seating, but Elite Hoops decided to keep the pine wood tradition alive. This summer, the 4th annual NIKE Basketball Camp will be in Cumming, Ga at Piney Grove Middle School. The coincidentally named middle school has sold out each of the previous 3 summers. Camp will have a combination of old school work ethic with a new school style.

Elite Hoops own Michelle Manfredi will be hosting the Peachtree City NIKE Basketball Camp in July. Outside of Manfredi's great work with Elite Hoops, her resume speaks volumes. Manfredi has D1 experience as a player and coach from Niagara University. As Niagara's all time leader in minutes and games played, she helped develop players at the university on and off the court. Also, Manfredi has professional experience playing in Germany plus  individual workouts with the WNBA LA Sparks. If you think you can keep up, come to Piney Grove Middle School this summer.

The 2013 NIKE Boys Basketball Camp at Piney Grove Middle School in Cumming, Georgia will be held June 17-21, 2013. To sign up and register, please select the link below.
